The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of low-fat high-protein and low-fat high-carbohydrate dietary advice on weight loss, using group-based interventions, among overweight people with type 2 diabetes. The study found that overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes are more likely to reduce weight if they focused on cutting back on total calorie intake, rather than on specific high protein/high carbohydrate diets.
